Critics not too fond of Netflix’s latest release

Best. Christmas. Ever! has been slammed as the “worst” holiday film this year. It has secured a low score of 38 per cent on Rotten Tomatoes and 4.4/10 on IMDb. According to Benjamin Lee, a top critic on Rotten Tomatoes, Best. Christmas. Ever! is “barely even a movie, more one long montage of bits that never run on long enough to be defined as scenes.”

Lee added, “It’s a premise that suggests something as salty as it is sweet but the film, directed by Pet Sematary’s Mary Lambert, is as wet as a pile of melting snow, refusing to indulge in any fun cattiness, transforming the pitch for a dark comedy into a sickly family movie, overstuffed with inane life lessons and cloying kids.”

Audiences call it ‘worst Christmas film ever’

Soon after Best. Christmas. Ever! was released on Netflix, it captured the audiences’ attention at first glance. However, some of those who watched the film were unhappy with its plot and overall direction. One user wrote on X, formerly Twitter, “#BESTCHRISTMASEVER is probably my the worst Christmas movie I’ve seen in a long time…” Another added, “The best Christmas ever is THE WORST movie I’ve ever watched. I have no idea of how it’s number 2 on Netflix lol.”
